Editorial Policy

NJMS welcomes high-quality original research papers and survey articles in all areas of Mathematical Sciences and real – life applications at all levels including new theories, techniques and applications to science, industry and society. The authors should justify that the theoretical as well as computational results they claim really contribute to Mathematical Sciences or in real- life applications.
Although, there is no page limit for a paper to submit in NJMS , it is strongly suggested that a complete manuscript be no less than 5 pages and no more than 20 pages (10 pt, including figures, tables, and references) as mentioned in the paper Template. However, this can be extended with the acceptance of the respective referees and the Editor-in- Chief. The submitted manuscript should meet the standard of the NJMS.

Review Policy

Hard-copy submissions will not be considered for further evaluation. Authors are strongly encouraged to submit manuscripts electronically to NJMS through the Editor-in- Chief. This will allow quicker and more efficient processing of the manuscript for further review process. As soon as a member of the editorial board in the respective research area accepts the request of Editor-in- Chief, the Editor-in- Chief will send the manuscript to him/her for further review process. The authors will be acknowledged the recipient of submitted manuscript.
The Editor-in- Chief will forward the paper for review process or communicate back to the author if the manuscript meets the aim and scope of the journal otherwise the manuscript will be rejected, or should be rewritten and resubmitted for further review process. If the manuscript is forwarded for the review process, the authors will be notified by the Editor-in- Chief for the specific purpose. The reviewing processes will be informed to the corresponding author by the Editor-in- Chief. The Editor-in- Chief will proceed forward for further evaluation process among the experts recommended by the author himself or any other experts. The Editor-in- Chief will assign manuscript to three referees for the review. The reviewers will write a report to the Editor-in- Chief as their recommendations accepted or to be accepted with minor revision or to be considered with major revision or be rejected lacking the standard of the journal. The same rule applies to the papers authored by the editorial board members. It is scheduled that the overall review process will be finalised within three months of submission. The referees will be requested and reminded by the Editor-in- Chief accordingly. The reviewers are informed about the authors through the paper submission; however, authors do not know the reviewers. At the end of the review process, the Editor-in- Chief immediately informs the author about the acceptance or rejection of the manuscript. On acceptance, the author is expected to incorporate the modifications suggested by the reviewers (if any) and submit a soft copy (both tex and pdf files and all figures) of the final revised manuscript to the editor in communication.
